Blue screen error when installing Raid 0?

By ryan29121

  1. I just ordered all new parts for a new computer with a raid 0. The hard drives are the exact same drive and they are all connected properly. I set up raid within the bios as the motherboard manual says and then when I go to install the drivers for the sata controller it cannot read my drivers. I have tried this with a usb drive and a floppy drive and no luck. If i try and install windows without the drivers i get a blue screen when the xp disc tries to pull up the hard drive information. Can anyone help me with this?

    Usually the xp setup will not blue screen if it cant find the drivers for the sata controller. It will usually just tell you that is cant fin the hard drive. This would be the time where you make sure that your memory timings are correct. Also, if you cant load the drivers from a floppy, make sure that the drivers are the right ones. Dealing with RAID, sometimes from my experience, it is hard to find boot drivers for windows setup.
